„Original Reporting“ – traditioneller Journalismus stolpert auf dem Weg in die digitale Zukunft. Eine Studie über Philadelphia

leave a comment »

Einer der größten Stolpersteine auf dem Weg in die digitale Zukunft ist die traditionelle journalistische Kultur. Das stellt der amerikanische Journalistik-Professor C.W. Anderson in einer Studie über die Entwicklung des Lokaljournalismus in Philadelphia in den Jahren vor und nach der Jahrtausendwende fest.

„Traditional media failed to see the potential for collaboration with new digitally-focused entrants, and maintained that they were the only ones who could reliably fulfil the goal of informing the public about the news.”

„In particular, local journalism’s occupational self-image, its vision of itself as an autonomous workforce conducting original reporting on behalf of a unitary public, blocked the kind of cross-institutional collaboration that might have helped journalism thrive in an era of fractured communication.”

Die etablierten Medien beharrten auf ihrem klassischen Grundverständnis, dass

„traditional journalism had to consist only of reporting original news.“

“My research demonstrated that the practice of original reporting was far from being either pure or unproblematic. The kind of work that constituted “original reporting” seemed increasingly difficult for journalists to define.“

Die traditionellen Medien hatten es versäumt, ein News-Netzwerk aufzubauen:

„Developments in the local Philadelphia news ecosystem seemed to be creating a situation in which it made rational sense to ‘network the news’ through institutional collaboration, hypertext linking, and formal and informal partnerships [but] such collaboration and innovation not only did not occur; it seemed to be purposefully thwarted.”
